"Nice but noisey"
the first few days all seemed nice, but for the last few days a giant screen was erected for the football. we were not pre warned at all about this, not while booking, nor when we checked in. We were advised on the day of the first game by flyer. the screen was directly below our room. the footabll wasn't the problem it was the disco music played in between and after it. it ruined our last 2 days. the staff were not interested, just saying 'you have to see the customer care manger tomorrow' but tomorrow never comes as he was always too busy. The staff's attitude was extremely dissappointing, the place was loud and owing to this we shall never return.

"Good place to stay, and central"
The hotel was in a central location, at the bottom of the Strip, with access to the beach and boarded beach walks. There were renovations taking place through out the appartments with apt upgrading. We were lucky to have received one of the newly refurbished rooms, the decor is lovely, very comfortable with Air conditioning, and all the kitchen facilities you need inc a dishwasher. We had a large balcony with full sun from midday until the evening overlooking the pool, with new outdoor furniture. The staff were very helpful and apt was cleaned every other day. When all the renovations are finished these apts will be fab. Although there was some noise, I cannot complain as we had got one of the upgraded apts. There is also a great shuttle bus service from the hotel to the old town, and between the other hotels in the group. We took the bus in the evenings to Forte do Vale, and then walked it only takes about 10 mins to the old town. You can also get the tourist train at the Forte do Vale roundabout. Had a great holiday and weather was fab! alot of lovely restaurants esp the Sizzling Stone close to the apts, and Flavours in the Old Town. TIP if you are staying in apts overlooking the pool take the lift to the 8th floor and walk up the steps to the 9th floor here you can walk through the gardens to the main road, much easier than walking up the hill road and there is Sol Cafe which has free wifi, as the hotel lobby wifi was not great..

the hotel now is under an overhaul and the room we had in K block is also ready for an up grade. Other wise the restaurant and pool area is nice except a bit noisy from the building work. The supermarket has been under repair for nearly 2 years. Perhaps best left for a couple of years until all refurbishment is finished

This was the 4th time we have stayed at this hotel in the last 15 years. Facilities are good (swimming pool/sauna etc) the location is perfect (just next to the beach) staff helpful and speak good english. Rooms are kept clean with maid service. The only down side is the construction work that is going on at present. Once this is finished it will return to being a good choice of location.

would not have booked at this hotel had we been told of horrendous noise from builders from 8am to 8pm EVERYDAY!!!! (except sunday ) appartment above and below and two doors down worked on? a holiday is suppose to be restful! not a builders yard! we also had a light blow because of leaking water and at first were told to put a bucket under it (this being 1130pm when reported) but after insisting it was dangerous being electic we were given next appartment having had to move (no assistance given) in the pouring rain therefore my overall holiday while at this hotel was disappointing i might add the holiday was ruined by not being able to rest at all and the only way to get any peace was to leave the hotel!!

We were not told beforehand that a LOT of building / upgrade work would be taking place during our stay. It was VERY noisy around the pool all day every day,and also in our apartment as the floors above were having tiles chipped up. The on site supermarket was closed for refurbishment, which meant a trail to the other closest shops.

"nice for the price"
hotel at time of visit (early Feb) was being refurbished being most of the studios around the pool, so a lot of noise early morning to late evening for people in that area, advised to check with your agent or hotel if your travelling in the next few weeks. We paid for an upgrade to a 1 bedroom app.which was 200yds up the road from the hotel complex so ok for some but we felt a little out of it, the back hotel is situated close the beach with around 4 to 5 eating places but be prepared to walk a lot to the main areas,the strip about 10/15 min walk and old town around 30+ mins, but you can get the small train from the strip to old town,run till 11ish for 4 euro for a day pass,good deal The hotel is clean, reception area nicely furnished with a very nice coffee shop to the side serving snacks and very nice cakes at reasonable prices, large flat screen showing all the premier league action, seats and chairs outside to enjoy your coffee,WiFi free in reception.the staff were very nice and the service was good, overall the hotel was very good value for the price we paid but it must be noted this was early Feb, this will obviously change in the summer months so debatable whether I would want to pay the full whack for the same

This was an exceptionally good Expedia deal, inexpensive for the combined flight and hotel as well as transfer from Faro airport. Everything went smoothly and no isssues whatsoever. Im sure in the summer time the whole resort will be heaving but early December very few tourists were evident and much of the local resort area outside the hotel was mothballed. The hotel itself did have enjoyable entertainment every night.

"Nice hotel being taken downmarket"
My wife and I have visited CPO 5 times in the past 6 or 7 years, and have always had a good time there. It, along with the other Petchey Leisure hotels nearby, has been bought by an organisation called MGM (nothing to do with the Cinema/Movie company) who appear to be intent on taking out cost and pushing prices up. The bar prices are going up above inflation each time we visit. They have started only turning down beds every second day. Bigger issue is that they have removed all 4 heated spas and replaced them with wooden decking, presumably to save money. These were one of the main attractions of the hotel for us. They have also filled in half of the pool to make it about 1.4 metres deep at the "deep" end, whereas is was originally 2.2 metres, with a glass window from the deep end into the reception area. This has all gone now, making the pool too shallow for adults to safely jump into. The other nice thing about staying at a Petchey Leisure hotel was that you can use the facilities if the other nearby hotels in the group, so one has a nicer bar, the other has a better pool, etc. and they are all nearby, so you can go to any hotel in the group and use their facilities. They have introduced coloured armbands to prevent people doing that, which is a real shame. They are happy for you to spend money in the bars of other group hotels, but they don't allow CPO residents to use the Oura View Beachclub pool. The only place they appear to have spent money is a weird reception refurb

"Ensure you're in the main section..."
When we arrived we were allocated a one bedroom apartment in an anex.It was dingy with a tiny balcony, small TV, safe too small for a laptop and the paid wifi did not work. We had stayed here before so knew we had been given a bum deal.. We requested a new apartment and were given a lovely one bedroom, open plan apartment with wifi router in the room, adequate size safe and adequate size TV. It made all the difference to our 9 day holiday. Staff are very helpful and professional, location for the beach is magic and the apartments are close to the strip with supermarkets and restaurants, etc.Also within walking distance to the town centre or a short bus ride.Make sure you have dinner at the Beach Cafe, 100 m east along the beach path for a most delicious meal and the best beach around. The apartments are well appointed if a little dated, particularly the bathroom but otherwise very comfortable, spacious and airy.

"Great Location, close to the beach and strip"
We booked a studio apartment in Clube Praia da Oura, Albufeira but when we arrived found it too small for us so paid to upgrade to a one bedroom apartment which was lovely. Cost an extra £260, but as we were there for 10 days was worth the money for the comfort. Room was cleaned everyday for the first week but then not cleaned for 3 days, we went to reception and it was sorted straight away. Beautiful views from the balcony We were on the corner of the east block over looking the beach. Room 562. Towels and sufficient cooking utensils all supplied. Would return to this hotel. The beach was beautiful and lots of little coves as well as main beaches. Lovely little beach café which does good food and cocktails. Sun beds were 6 euros to hire and well worth the money if you are there for a full day. The strip was ok, took a bit of getting used to as quite hectic, lots of stag and hen dos but we saw no trouble and everyone seemed to be having a good time.Top of the strip is quieter and the bottom towards the beach much more lively. The new town is a short taxi ride away and cost about 6 euros or you can catch the tourist train which is 2 euros each way.Very busy but something for everyone. Many shops, restaurants and bars. All in all a great place as has something for everyone. Weather was between 27 and 32 everyday. Only one cloudy day but still warm. We went the second week of September and generally we were told it is usually good at this time.

"Pleasant Setting on Good Beach"
Initally disappointed to find two single beds when we had booked a double bed. Told that to obtain a double bed we would have to upgrade to a bigger unit at a cost of hundreds of Euro's. Why can't a double bed be installed into the room and if not, could that option not be excluded at time of booking? Another shock was to find that there was no airconditioning, which one would have expected in this climate and in a property of this nature.. However, the room had excellent views of the sea from a very pleasant patio, the gardens were well tended and the position of the complex on the beach, very good.

"Great hotel, good food"
We can thoroughly recommend this hotel. We had never stayed in a resort hotel before and didn't know what to expect. In fact, our prejudice was rather negative, but the CPO (Clube Praia da Oura) turned this around and made want to come back. However, when we first arrived and were taken to our room by the porter, we were a bit disappointed as the beds were twin beds (we were a couple) and our room (although sea view) was facing the so-called Bowling Green where between 8pm and midnight they have entertainment programme going on, i.e. loud dance/party music. We came to the resort to chill, to read our books, to have cosy comfy evenings/nights on the balcony with a cold beer or nice glass of wine. Four hours of loud party music would have been torture for us and I truly feel sorry for the people who had to put up with it. We went straight back to reception to ask for a different room away from the "entertainment area" and were very happy with the alternative we were given. Block K with double bed and sea view. So bear in mind, when you book, that there are certain parts of the building where you don't want to be put if you like your peace and quiet. (I should add that there is more loud music between 5-6.30pm in that same part of the estate) We would come back to this club any time - but would call to make sure we get the rooms we want.

"Shocked. No AC!"
We booked Clube Praia Da Oura for a 4 night stay in July. I was hopeful that the bad reviews on trip advisor were unwarranted, unfortunately that was not the case. While the service was good and the upkeep of the grounds was very good as well, there was one major issue that could not be overlooked; no AC. There were merely two small fans in the room that offered little to no relief from the heat blazing outside. Stepping into the room was like stepping into a hot stove every time. There is no excuse for not offering AC in all rooms in a place such as algarve, especially when it is advertised as such. For this reason I would certainly not recommend this apartment hotel. No AC made it extremely uncomfortable each and every night.

"Won't be returning to Clube Praia da Oura"
My mother and I have just returned from a week in Clube Praia da Oura, our studio apartment was up a very steep hill, which my mother found difficult to climb, I picked these apartments are they are advertised as being on the beach, our apartment was a 10 minutes walk from the beach, so beware when booking. There wasn't any air con in our Studio and when I asked about hiring a fan I was told they hadn't any left. The pool was extremely loud with music, so we opted for the beach everyday which was alot more relaxing. I guess you get what you pay for and the accommodation was cheap, we won't be returning, ever!

"Great hotel for anybody-from an 18 yr old"
The staff were so helpful and friendly, and really went beyond what was expected. Our room was lovely and quite big considering it was only a standard room for 2 people. The location was amazing and enabled you to go to so many different places. The beaches are so close and the pool was lovely and therefore the gorgeous hot weather wasn't at all a problem! I would definitely recommend this resort/hotel to a friend and would love to go back again as it literally couldn't have been a better holiday! Eventhough the resort was mainly families, 30 18 year olds in my friendship group all went with me, and there was lovely and cheap places to eat out, as well as a having a supermarket really nearby! The strip offered us plenty of clubs and bars to go to in the evening and so it couldn't have been better!!!

"Nice View But Disappointing Overall"
On arrival in the room (had studio with sea view), was very disappointed in how dark the room was. Was not happy with two single beds, and tucked away in the back of the room so no view when you wake up in the morning. You have to pass by other rooms' balcony's and you realize straight away that you will have no peace and no privacy as the walls between the balcony's are half walls, able to see over and hear everyone's conversations very clearly.Wifi is not free, 6eur/day and doesn't connect more than 3 or 4 times a day. Rooms are not serviced more than twice a week (asked for towels and it was a hassle to get them but eventually I did get a new set on the third day). Very disappointed in the pool area, everyone is very squeeed in -and TRUST ME, you MUST get to the pool before 9am or most of the loungers have been reserved (people come up around 8, leave their towels on the chosen loungers and go away for a couple of hours). And I agree wholeheartedly with another reviewer: the barking packs of dogs across the way are really annoying. On a positive note, the beach is within a very easy stroll, lots of restaurants, lots of beach activities Surrounding town is great, again lots of bars and resaturants. All in all i was reservedly satisfied but if you want a peaceful, private relaxing holiday, four pools and lots of activites along with the beach within steep cliff walk, try the Alfagar Aparthotels, stayed there two weeks prior and loved every second of it.

"Senior couples view."
The hotel covers a large area and it's worth susing out where you would like your room to be. We had paid extra for a room with a sea view which turned out to be quiet comfortable and with a fantastic view. High level rooms are better for couples and its worth deciding whether you would like the morning or evening sun on your patio. The down side of the rooms is that you have to pull one of the single beds from under the other bed each night to form either two singles or one double bed.

"Low Budget but Brilliant"
We had a studio room located on the ground level directly across from the pool. The room was very adequate for what we needed. We were however a bit surprised to find that the pull out bed was in fact not a sofa bed but instead two small single mattresses, one rolled out under the upper level mattress and could be put back together as a small couch. This was ok for us because we are sisters, but would not be desirable for a couple. The kitchen was adequate but lacked a coffee maker. We were aware and brought our own small coffee maker. Would recommend this to people who do not require a fancy place, but want the ability to make their own meals. Perfect distance to the strip, the beach and walking distance to old town.
